Sweet, Sweet Lonely Girl
Directed by A.D. Calvo
When Adele (Erin Wilhelmi) is sent to look after her aunt Dora, she hopes to bond with the kind lady who cared for her as a child. But Dora won’t leave her room and barely speaks. So when Adele meets the seductive Beth, her lonely life improves for the first time. After Beth pushes her to shirk her duties however, Adele faces a dangerous reckoning. Who is Beth and what does she want from Adele? From performances to visual style, A.D. Calvo’s queer supernatural chiller evokes the eerie atmosphere of 70s and 80s horror in much the same way Ti West did with THE HOUSE OF THE DEVIL.
A young woman caring for her sick aunt is pushed into bad behavior by a seductive new friend.
Cast: Quinn Shephard, Susan Kellermann, Erin Wilhelmi
This one is a type of movie that will reveal itself at the end.
I really enjoyed the slow buildup and thought the film was well-paced throughout (slow, but steady). I got lost at the end, though. Maybe some of the imagery flashed throughout the movie might make some sense of the last five minutes, but I don't know. I don't mind "just because" as a reason for why things happen in horror movies, but this ending seemed like it was trying to convey something and failed in the execution.
Just finished the movie (obvi) and gotta say I'm pretty darn confused. The movie is slow, but I thought there was going to be an awarding explanation towards or at the end... and well no.
Pretty dang baf aside from the lesbianism.
